Airing nightly at 7 p.m. ET on Telemundo, throughout the duration of the tournament, the show marks the first time ever a U.S. broadcaster of the World Cup produces a prime time show solely dedicated to the World Cup.

Its actually these sort of games that make the world cup what it is. The best sporting tournament in the world.

If Fox was smart it would use the world feed for commentary. Now that the US is not in the tournament it wont matter. Will save them some money as well.

A:Read our complete list ofinternational commentaries available for the World Cupincluding Arabic, French, Portuguese and Polish.

Im not aware of anything, sorry!

Your guess is as good as mine how FOX will mix and match LA-based announcers for teams 4-6. We do know that only American accents will be considered by David Neal, so the pool of suspects narrow: Glenn Davis, Mark Followill, Mark Rogodino (pxp); Cobi Jones, Tony Meola, Brian Dunseth (analyst).

Q: Who will be showing World Cup 2018 for viewers in the United States?

FOX Sports has released no details about re-runs, but games will be available on-demand via their FOX Sports Go and FOX Sports apps.

I wish I can spend a month overseas or even go to Canada and watch the World Cup in style instead of watching it on Fox Sports. Canada will use the world feed for commentary while it looks like Fox will be using its domestic crew from LA. Think about it people, JP Dellacamera calling a Germany or England game. Are you kidding me, No thanks. We miss you ESPN.

So now you have read their contracts??? Your worthless

Im enjoying the football World Cup coverage I think theyre doing a good job. One question: do you happen to know whos got the rights for Euro 2020? Fox or ESPN? Thanks.

Oh, well, it means I will get a lot more work done and can afford to skip a good portion of the group stage games on weekdays . Thats going to be a first for me, but, I mean, Panama v. Tunisia; Poland Senegal; there are some truly awful matches early on that unless you have nothing better to do or your country isnt playing, then-me-h.

FOX Sports will televise all of the games across its network of channels including FOX, FS1, FS2 and FOX Soccer Plus.

Now that Brad Friedel is no longer available (head coach of New England Revolution), the analyst role on the 2 team will be split between Stuart Holden and Aly Wagner, with Wagner almost a LOCK to call the 3rd place game due to her experience as a player at World Cup 3rd place matches (she did NOT mail it in, unlike Alexi Lalas who mailed in the 1995 Copa America 3rd place match.) JP DellaCamera will be the 2 play-by-play man.

On a daily basis, FOX will keep viewers updated on all of the latest news, discussion and highlights with two shows. The first is World Cup Live.
